I have a VMware ESXi host that runs 2 virtual machines, and we will be adding two more to it. One VM is our main DC/DHCP/DNS/Fileshare/SVN server, and the other is a development testing VM. The two additional ones that will be added soon will also be development machines.
My question is this: we have two LAN ports on the VM host. I know I will want to add at least one or two more NIC cards to balance the load, but the server is behind a switch. Will this cause extreme bottlenecking for others in the office? And is it worth it to move the server into our closet which has direct access to about 20 more ports on the network?
I ask this because it seems like a bottleneck would happen when you have 15 people trying to access one server over one cable that gets split to 4-5 destinations.
